Are white cheeses better than yellow cheeses?

When it comes to weight loss, yes. Yellow cheeses tend to have more calories than their lighter-coloured counterparts because of their higher fat concentrations.

Cheddar, for instance, has 412 calories and 34g of fat per 100g, whereas Brie has 319 calories and 27g of fat. But let's face it, the only truly low-fat, lowish-calorie cheese is cottage cheese, which certainly has its uses but lacks a certain something. Taste, I think.
